§ 202. Covered employer. 1. An employer who has in employment, after
June thirtieth, nineteen hundred sixty-one, one or more employees on
each of at least thirty days in any calendar year, shall be a covered
employer subject to the provisions of this article from and after
January first, nineteen hundred sixty-two, or the expiration of four
weeks following the thirtieth day of such employment, whichever is the
later.

2. The provisions of subdivision one of this section shall not apply
to an employer of personal or domestic employees in a private home,
except an employer shall become a covered employer from and after the
expiration of four weeks following the employment of one or more
personal or domestic employees who work for a minimum of forty hours per
week for such employer and are employed on each of at least thirty days
in any calendar year.

3. A covered employer, except as otherwise provided herein, shall
continue to be a covered employer until the end of any calendar year in
which he shall not have employed in employment one or more employees on
each of thirty days, and shall have duly filed with the chairman
satisfactory evidence thereof. A covered employer of employees in
personal or domestic service in a private home shall continue to be a
covered employer until the end of any calendar year in which he shall
not have employed in such service one or more employees for at least
forty hours per week and on each of at least thirty days, and shall have
duly filed with the chairman satisfactory evidence thereof.

4. An employer who by operation of law becomes successor to a covered

of a covered employer, shall immediately become a covered employer.

5. Whenever an employee of a covered employer, with the consent of the
employer, engages or permits another to do any work in employment for
which the employee is employed, the employer shall be deemed for the
purpose of this article to be the employer also of such other person,
regardless of whether the employee or the employer pays for his service.
